  1. I know it sounds strange but my history about the lack of meaning in life is similar to yours. I would like to chat about it.

  2. Hey how are you?

  3. Are you okay? The last time you were logged in was 1-21-14.

  4. Doesn't "those who do not know history are doomed to repeat it" have the corollary "those who do know history are doomed to watch everyone else repeat it"?
  5. If you can find any convincing evidence for any religious belief, let me know.
  6. You're very obviously conflating new information leading a person to new ideas with simply deciding to believe something different. One happens, the other does not. I have no inclination to argue the matter further.
  7. I can't even convince myself that the red pen sitting on my desk is blue. The idea that a person chooses his beliefs is laughable. ---------- Post added 01-02-2014 at 02:42 AM ---------- Can you actually do that? I mean, you personally? Because I'm totally incapable of it.
  8. That does not strike me at all as "you're not that far gone". It seems much, much more to be "don't bother me because my problems are/were much worse than yours".
  9. Well, that's true of a large portion of medicine - not just psychiatry - and I don't see many people castigating diabetes treatments because they just "paper over problems with medication". It would be great to have easy, fast cures for every problem a person had, but I don't think it's reasonable to say "it's bad because it's not perfect all the time".
  10. Why would you be against something that helps you quite a bit?
  11. Did you even read my post?
  12. This is kinda dangerous thinking. If a (for the sake of this scenario) bad psychiatrist can say that a person isn't of sound mind AND any attempt to discredit the psychiatrist or the theoretical basis of the diagnosis is merely evidence that the diagnosis is correct, then that person suddenly has absolutely no recourse. I'm not a psychiatry conspiracy theorist and most doctors are decent people trying to help, but psychiatry HAS been used many times for exactly these kinds of nefarious purposes in the past.
  13. Almost every line in this post directly contradicts another line. It's a really good illustration of how these bromides are spouted without the slightest thought to any kind of philosophical (or hell, even logical) consistency.
  14. That's only significant if you care about those ripples you make. I know that, personally, I don't have any interest in "inspiring others", so why would I care that I have the ability to do so?
